Iran-Pakistan Transit Corridor to Be Launched Soon

Iran and Pakistan will establish a transport and transit corridor in the near future, Iran’s minister of roads and urban development said. In an interview held in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore, Abbas Akhoundi added that enhancing cooperation with the neighboring countries is the priority of the incumbent Iranian government, IRNA reported on Monday. Heading a high-level delegation, Akhoundi paid an official three-day visit to Pakistan for talks with the country’s officials on enhancing bilateral cooperation through upgraded road, rail and sea traveling facilities. He added that Iran desires to enhance air links with Pakistan to provide better and speedier facilities to the pilgrims and tourists of Pakistan. The minister said Iran and Pakistan have also agreed to start direct flights from Chabahar, Zabol, Zahedan and Iranshahr to different cities of Pakistan. Akhoundi added that a decision has also been made to start ferry services between Chabahar and Karachi ports.  Both countries would also cooperate to upgrade Zahedan-Quetta Railroad to resume passenger train services between the two cities.
